Breastfeeding & Formula

For moms whose goal is to breastfeed, we provide private lactation services (copays apply). Sometimes, supplementing with formula is necessary for your baby’s growth. Our providers can help you determine which formula is right for your child.

Kellee Hays, IBCLC is our very own lactation consultant offering private appointments in the office for patients and parents who are interested in a consult or for those who have feeding concerns.

Kellee Hays is a board-certified Lactation Consultant. She completed her Bachelor of Arts in English and Political Science at Purdue University with Phi Beta Kappa honors. She earned her Master of Library and Information Science: Legal, Health and Science Concentration from Indiana University in 1993. She then began her career at the UCLA School of Medicine’s Brain Research Institute as a project coordinator in the fields of the neuroscience and sleep research. After relocating to the East Coast and while taking some time off with her three children, she became a La Leche League leader offering assistance to breastfeeding families. Kellee found working with new families very rewarding and chose to return to school and pursue a career as a lactation consultant and parenting educator. In 2011 she became an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant and has provided services at Metropolitan Breastfeeding and Sibley Memorial Hospital and Virginia pediatric group in Fairfax, Va.
